Not stretched or framed | Acrylic on canvas
Tjawina Porter Nampitjinpa is the sister of Esther Giles Nampitjinpa and the half sister of Nyurapayia Nampitjinpa. Tjawina is originally from the remote Docker River community Tjukurla. Tjawina moved from the Docker River to Papanya Tula in the 1970’s and developed her painting during the Desert Art Movement. The artist paints ‘My Country’ which encompasses the traditional Dreaming sites of her birthplace. The artist has also been influenced by the Dreaming of her father and mother including, ‘Yumara Dreaming’ which tells of a forbidden love story, 'Punkilpirri Dreaming’ representing a large water site and ‘Tjalili’ representing the geographical area of her country. Tjawina has since moved back to her country in the Docker River. Tjawina paints beautifully vibrant and intricate depictions of her Dreaming, which utilise a strong dot style creating a multilayered effect, making her works some of the most collectable in Central Desert Australia. The artist is held in national and international collections and has been exhibited in Australian galleries including: -2010 Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery, Sydney NSW -2014, 2015 Japingka Gallery, Fremantle WA
